Worth it 100%
Awesome experience. You learn so much about the history of Krakow and the historical district of Kazimierz. Had an excellent guide who really took the time to explain everything. Well worth it and more interesting in my opinion than a cart tour. Overall about 2hr30 of walking around the city and district

Very interesting walk around Jewish Quarter
Jack led the morning (3 hours) walking tour of the Jewish Quarter of Krakow, ending up at Scindler's factory. There were only 5 if us on the tour which was a perfect size.
Jack was very knowledgeable and kept our attention throughout. We learn so much which we would never have done from z guide book. We'll worth the money.

Turned up for the trip at the time stated and waited and waited and no one turned up. Tried contacting the company and got no answer. Was advised by another tour operator that it wasn’t the first time. Very disappointed

Hello. I am very sorry but you got the starting time wrong. Our tour departs daily at 10.00. It is clearly printed on Your voucher and in the product info. You have contacted us that you are waiting at our meeting point at 12.00. We have been operating this tour for the past 10 years without any flaw. It is a pity that you give us 1 star for the tour You've missed upon your mistake. Best regards

Fantastic Tour

We did the Jewish Quarter tour with Alex and it was absolutely fantastic. His depth of knowledge about the history of area was second to none. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning with him & would highly recommend the cool tour company to anyone else visiting Krakow. Shamone.

Very interesting and informative tour. You start off at the meeting point in the main square and walk with a small group to the jewish quarter. The guide was a fountain of knowledge. Quite alot of walking though so be prepared with comfy walking shoes.

Fantastic guide with prefect English
Sep 2019
We went on a reply nice walking tour with Alex. He is an English teacher with perfect English and is very knowledgeable about the important parts of history and culture. It is great to explore Krakow on foot and see memorable parts of the Jewish quarters known form the film Schindler's list. The tour comes highly recommended and at a low cost.

Excellent Must See
Jan 2019 • Friends
I went on a small group walk round the Jewish Quarter with Jack the guide, it was an excellent experience even with the snow, Jack is a very knowledgeable gentleman and an enjoyment to listen to. If anything I would have loved to have gone into a synagogue however I will do that the next time I come to Poland. Highly Recommend
